commuter car entering the city must have at least three people in it. president obama and governor romney's renewed campaign come as the latest polls show president obama lead big six points in eye but locked in a tight balle with romney in new hampshire and wisconsin. nearly all interviews conducted before hurricane sandy, which just might end up being the defining moment of this election. joining me today to discuss all of this and more, msnbc political analyst and national affairs editor for "new york" magazine, john heilemann. msnbc political analyst and executive editor of msnbc.com, richard wolffe. msnbc political analyst, jonathan alter of bloomberg view, and msnbc political analyst and former dnc, karen finney, hopefully joining us shortly. john, i go to you first. in terms of sandy being an inflection point, game changer, if you will, a term we do not toss around lightly, are we -- is it -- is it a game changer? can you prognosticate that far? do you think the president is stronger coming out of the sandy response as a candidate? >> look, there's no question that if you think abo

of times later in the day. the governor and president obama took a helicopter ride over the area from atlantic city down to an area where the governor had told people to get off and in many cases they didn't and he kind of jokingly but firmly let them know when they were speaking a couple minutes after the video you're seeing right now, he let them know he was not happy with them but he'd give them a break this time around. but it's just a very, very kind of like -- this is a -- you know it's not a big state geographically but it's a very densely populated state and very diverse when it comes to geography as well. the highlands took a tremendous hit because that's where the winds seemed to be the strongest and trees came down and power is out there and there's no telling when it will be restored. along the shore, of course, you're seeing some of the damage that occurred there where once stood houses there are now waves in some cases. then you go up farther north closer to new york city across the hudson and you have places like jersey city and hoboken, places that are populated with a
on the jersey shore as president barack obama and new jersey governor chris christie toured hurricane damage in some of the hard-hit areas there. a little bit unexpected today, given that chris christie gave the keynote address at the republican convention against the president last summer. none of that political animosity on display today. both men said that they talked about everything from restoring power to clean drinking and sewage water in the area. >> i discussed all those issues today with the president and i'm pleased to report that he has sprung into action immediately to help get us those things while we were in the car riding together. so i want to thank him for that. he has worked incredibly closely with me since before the storm hit. >> governor christie throughout process has been responsive, he's been aggressive, i think the people of new jersey recognize that he has put his heart and soul into making sure that the people of new jersey bounce back. >> and larry, i asked the folks on the romney campaign what they made of chris christie's political bear hug here of president ba
for tuning in. tonight's lead, it looks like obama/christie 2012. president obama in new jersey, governor chris christie today toured hard hit areas of hurricane sandy. their survey of the devastation reminded americans of how many people are suffering from the storm and how essential it is for government to help them. and then governor christie, the man mitt romney handpicked to give the keynote address at his convention began to praise president obama. >> obviously i want to thank the president. we spent a significant afternoon together surveying the damage up and down the new jersey coastline. we were on marine one together and we saw an opportunity to discuss it at length. and then going over to the shelter here, being able to meet with folks, seeing the president and his concern. he has sprung into action immediately while we were in the car riding together. so i want to thank him for that. he has worked incredibly closely with me since before the storm hit. this is our sixth conversation since the weekend and it's been a great working relationship to make sure that we're doing the j
. that completely blows up governor romney's closing argument for why he should replace president obama in the oval office. >> indeed. jared, it's not just this issue of bipartisanship, but mitt romney, as you know, has said, previously and repeatedly, particularly in the debates, that he would like to remove an organization like fema. >> right. >> now, not only is that highly inefficient, in terms of resourcing, but can i ask you, would it not also likely raise local taxes, because if each state is required to provide emergency assistance, then each state has to fund what the federal government is providing right this moment. >> precisely. instead of having a centralized disaster relief fund, which, of course, fema represents, each state would have to do so. by the way, they wouldn't do so. because state budgets don't work that way. everything is fungible. and in tough times like now, states can't run budget deficits. that fund would be dry, i guarantee you. and what's going to happen? the federal government's going to say, no, forget it? that's just not part of our budget? again, you know, mitt r
doubts the fact that governor christie and president obama want to have a recovery work as smoothly, as comprehensively, and as efficiently as it possibly can to help these people. >> if i can go back to you, jonathan capehart. i want to mention, mike viqueira talking about the cynical nature of politics, and suggesting or implying that every day is a political day. well, yesterday we received some criticism for discussing mitt romney's so-called storm relief event in the context of a campaign event. and i was eviscerated by telephone calls and so on. but now it emerges, according to buzz feed, that $5,000 was spent by the campaign to make the display of food look bigger. what's your assessment of what happened yesterday, john? >> oh, my. a campaign event that was not a campaign event, but was a campaign event. >> and was funded by the romney campaign, to the tune, no less, of $5,000. >> of $5,000. governor romney was stuck. he had a campaign event planned for ohio, a state that he needs to win. hurricane sandy blows in, devastates everything, decides not to campaign, but he still i

powerful imagery coming off. we've seen governor kristy, and president obama having this bromance talking about issues. it's importantbecause of one of mitt romney's powerful closing arguments is he can bridge the partisan divide. you see in the imagery between the president and governor they are working in a bipartisan way. they don't have to tell it. they show it. that potentially is a very strong momentum builder for the president into next tuesday. we're going to talk about the impact of sandy, then about other things. for example, governor romney has a provocative ad in ohio. some think he's taking a huge risk. we're going to see if that has impact. look at their closing arguments today. and the class is going to decide on electoral college map. >> how accurate have you been in the past? >> the class was very good four years ago. they beat me. >> do they all get a's? don't answer that. >> on their prediction. >> let's ask some of the young voters about some of this. what do think about the storm how the storm impacts this election? >> i don't think it really will. in new york, you mi
for the buckeye state? dealer >>neil: president obama wrapping up a tour around atlantic city a more ravaged areas of the storm obviously with governor christie there, and a reporter is with us, and we will probably interrupt you when they do speak. but, how is this sorting out? the polls are all over the place. one poll the president is up in ohio. another poll he is down in ohio. regardless of the poll types, across the board is this storm changing anything? >>guest: not really in ohio but we have not had enough good polling after the storm to tell if there is any difference but we had dueling conference calls between top romney and top obama strategists saying they are up. the romney are questioning a new poll that shows the president up by five points in ohio, but, also, losing among independents by six. so romney people are saying, look, we expect equal turn out between democrats and republicans so whoever wins the independents is going to win ohio and how can mitt romney be up six among independents and still losing? that is the mystery of the race height now. >>neil: we talking about the te
charging their ipods, even coffee machines by generator. in at land take city today, new jersey governor chris christie and president obama toured the state's battered coast. they stopped at a community center, where at its peak, 200 people found shelter. 50 still remain. a political odd couple, for sure. in the past, they've traded barbs. now, they must cooperate at chief executives and they heaped praise on each other today. >> it's been a great working relationship to make sure that we're doing the jobs that people elected us to do. >> i have to say that governor christie, throughout this process, has been responsive, he's been aggressive and i think the people of new jersey recognize that he has put his heart and soul into making sure that the people of new jersey bounce back even stronger than before. so, i just want to thank him for his extraordinary leadership and partnership. >> reporter: political aside, they will be judged. everyone in this situation will be judged by results. alone the jersey shore, there were dedicated disaster response teams just beginning the enormous task
explained why he is voting for romney the republican party is irrational, destructive, i don't want obama care repealed. he goes on and on this whole list of things. and that's why i'm voting for obama. to me, if indeed governor romney loses, the -- how this fissure between the mainstream and the tail that is wagging its dog, the tea party, how that's going to play out. as you say, eric, there will be conservatives saying oh, we should have nominated santorum. but it's obviously a more complicated problem for them than that. and it's going to be, again, if indeed the president is re-elected, the republican arguments afterward are going to be fascinating. >> you know what they need? they need an impassioned centrist in the republican party that can speak from his or her loins. i just wanted to say the word loins again for everybody watching this broadcast. after the break, despite its well documented issues courting the women's vote, team romney lately has been pushing a narrative that has closed the gender gap. we'll have cecil richards to unpack the myth when we return live to democracy
of florida today while president obama holds off until tomorrow. he is meeting with the jersey governor chris christie to tour the damage such in the wake of the storm. the columnist of the national -- national review and executive director of public knows. i'm going to start with you. i watched the press conference with chris christie and the president. let me tell you, is chris christie the governor who was supporting mitt romney or not? , a little confused. >> well, remember that he is running for reelection in 2013 in new jersey, which has not voted for republican for president in over 20 years. so it's good politics for him, and, frankly, so far he is very pleased with of the federal government has been responding to his requests for aid and assistance. 62 percent of new jersey, i lived in new jersey, is without power. that is a lot of angry potential voters if he does not get something done. so i think he is putting policy and his own politics temporarily ahead of mitt romney's. gerri: fascinating to watch, and i could not help but think maybe romney will have some kind of response down
the polls except rasmussen, who has the race tied at 49. florida, all the policy out this week has obama leading romney, but very close. and in the commonwealth, up 5 points but cbs has the president up by two. north carolina, rasmussen has romney up by 6 and survey usa has the governor leading by 5. new hampshire, new england college has obama up by 6 over mitt romney. last week rasmussen had romney up by 2. and nbc has the president up by 6 points. got all that? joining us now from boston, david. he directs polling. >> he want to run it down from your point of view. you have canvassed the whole country, know what's going on. ohio, how do you see it? >> i see it really close. if you look at the last four polls, it's one point. 1 through 8 the poll was average four to five points. what we look at is the head-to-head number. the last three consecutive polls, excluding the two you mentioned were at 48. that's a sign of vulnerability. obviously you have seven candidates on the ballot. i think those polls that had the plus four, plus five overstated obama's support because they overcounting
clean, or your money back. . >>> hurricane sand chip has president obama and governor romney scrambling to rearrange their campaign plans with the election just eight days away now. both men altering their schedules and cancelling events. chuck todd is chief white house correspondent. chuck, good morning to you. >> the calendar tell us there's eight days left before the election but there are not many campaign days. two campaign days and possibly three are gone. president obama woke up this morning in orlando thought he was going to do an event. they cancelled his appearance there. he's now back at the white house. he's already lopped off his entire tuesday schedule. mitt romney on the other hand is trying to find this balance. the fact of the matter is we know this is the october surprise, is this storm. the campaign has frozen in place as far as all the polls are concerned. the question now though who benefits from this race freezing? president obama tried to stay ahead of sandy arriving in orlando late sunday 12 hours ahead of schedule. mitt romney cancelled his weekend events in vir
john roberts live in kettering, ohio. >> both governor romney, congressman ryan, president obama and the vice president off the road. this was supposed to be a campaign event. they turned it into a relief effort. people were asked as the private admission bring some canned goods, dry goods, water, something like that. a lot of people got that message and showed up. they are collecting quite a few supplies. a lot of people didn't get that message, though, and really came here kind of empty handed. maybe they were still expecting some kind of a campaign event. no formal remarks though governor romney did stand up in front of the crowd, thanked them very much for coming down and said this is a time for the nation to come together to help those in harm's way. here is what the governor said. >> some went to the grocery store i see and purchased some thins that these families will need, and i appreciate your generosity. it's part of the american spirit, the american way. we won't be able to solve all the problems with our effort this morning, though a lot of people will still be lookin
president obama. >> yesterday i was with governor kasich and congressman ryan on the clip you showed, there was a good energy there, i was with congressman ryan and governor romney in canton. we had 10,000 people in a high school ball field in canton and great energy there and i think that governor kasich is doing a great job campaigning with governor romney and i believe a good synergy, imagine what we can unleash in ohio if week get government bureaucrats out of the way. the obama camp says we helped to save the auto industry in ohio and a lot of the jobs saved in ohio are as a result of us, what do you say to that? >> again, i believe we're doing well in ohio despite the headwinds. and one of the reasons we're bucking trends, we have oil and gas, and in the marseles and the utica shale formations and governor kasich and the legislature are opening up lands for drilling which is essentially creating jobs throughout the state in some of the most depressed counties, despite regulations and despite headwinds from washington. >> clayton: right. you know, it's interesting as you look at
, everyone. president obama, along with new jersey governor chris christie, will be touring parts of the jersey shore and devastation is immense and widespread. this morning we're in point pleasant beach, new jersey, this is an amazing scene. if you're familiar with this part of the jersey shore t looks nothing like it usually looks. take a look. you can see these traffic lights are all out. the force of the storm actually severed that one in half. what you see as you go through this area is mounds and mounds of sand. you can see mounds lining this street, that street is flooded. if we flip here a bit, this mound is about twice my height. what happened here during the storm was that sandy took the sand from the beach and just threw it inland here and now dozens of front end loaders have been gathering it up and pushing it to the side of the road so ultimately it can be shipped out of here. but governor christie says this will take a long time to get it where it needs to be but new jersey will come back. that's the latest from point pleasant beach, robert moses. back to you. >> eri
there and ohio is important. >> yeah. i think that today the storm will have some positive impact for obama because he's going to be moving through the state with governor christie, a symbol of bipartisanship that will help both of them and being presidential and dealing with the storm. that sort of thing always helps an incumbent. but i think on balance, it's going to be a negative for obama for a couple of reasons. one is the democrats rely on early voting. a lot of their vote is sort of machine vote, like nursing homes or like union halls. they'll put their people in a bus and move them to a polling place and get them out. they rely on early voting for that. and it will be hard to do that in pennsylvania, virginia and a couple of other places. the other thing which is more important really is that whenever conditions are averse, the voters that persevere are the motivated ones, the ones that really care and the polling shows there is a big gap in perseverance and caring and motivation between the republicans and the democrats this year. so i think in pennsylvania and ohio and virginia, t
out how we do something. >> bill: president obama taking the lead in the hurricane aftermath. charles krauthammer has some thoughts on that. >> i have had the chance to speak with some of the governors in the affected areas and they have talked about a lot of people having hard times. >> bill: governor romney also trying to appear presidential in the face of billions of dollars worth of damage and the loss of at least 39 american lives. we will take you to the devastation zones. caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. ♪ >> hi, i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. hurricane sandy in the presidential race. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. i'm sorry i missed you guys last night but i was transported back in time to 1850 after hurricane sandy hit long island, new york. actually, the storm didn't exactly hit us. it made landfall just south of atlantic city, new jersey about 100 miles away. but the winds off the ocean were so intense that they killed 18 people here in new york city and at least 40 overall. the
pictures of president obama speaking in northern new jersey. isn't this what a disaster like this required, a state governor to communicate and then cooperate with the president of the united states? >> it's absolutely what's required, and i think it is what americans want from their government. i think it has to be a source of pride for americans watching these two men who have been political combatants. chris christie a top surrogate for governor romney, standing next to each other, praising one another. not jst one way, the president has been praiseful of chris christie. i think republicans are really off base to criticize him just for thanking the president for doing his job and being a leader in this situation. >> when you were listening to rush limbaugh there, that had a hint of kind of homophobia, didn't it? >> rush limbaugh has been disgusting on all this. he also imitating the president in a very offensive way. indicated that he called chris christie and basically bullied him, said he wouldn't get any money if he didn't come out and do this. limbaugh is in his own land trying to s
on the economic and jobs front for the state of ohio. the issue, i think, for obama is that people are thinking about a lot more than just the economy and the automotive side specifically and, of course, the governor of ohio, john kasich, is tying to contribute anything that is positive to his administration as opposed to that of barack obama. >> that we have seen. jim, thank you so much. >> thank you. >>> an update now on sandy. the u.s. navy is helping with the cleanup of the jersey shore while more than 3 million people are still without power. anger is building at the gas pumps in new jersey. line res long. stations are running out of gas. in staten islands, residents are begging for help saying they have been forgotten. a special relief fund is being set up just for residents of the island. and transportation secretary ray la hood is heading to new jersey to talk to officials there about getting the transportation system back up and running. >>> time for the your business entrepreneur of the week. jess carney worked boston area renaissance fairs, haunted houses and nightclubs. he hopped se
they are both appealing to the last little undecideds. and so governor romney is making this case. he's basically saying you go with president obama, it's more of the same. >> rose: more years of what happened and are you not happy with what happened. >> exactly. and go with me and i have a plan. in his closing argument he goes through his five, he's even given some of his items, name, the names of the bills that he would enact. and the president is saying i'm not done yet. he says you know, i'm to the going to give up that fight. and then he goes in his closing argue speech he talks about various people. and he said they need a champion. so he is running as the champion for the middle class. and that is both a message to the base but it's also to those undecided voters. >> rose: romney is running as a champion of woman. >> romney is running as a champion of everyone, he says. and of course that is to deal with the lingering problems from that surreptitiously taped 47%. but he is saying now that he is running as the candidate of change. which taking president obama's tag line from '08
